The Regional Express flight was carrying only 16 passengers and three crew members.
During this point of time, the right propeller of the plane had detached. The Saab 340 aircraft landed safely at the Sydney Airport. And, not a single person on board the flight sustained any injuries, as reported by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau.
The propeller had dislodged from the aircraft just at the end of the flight from the region of Albury that is situated in New South Wales, Australia in Sydney. It is located at a distance of nearly 11 miles from the Sydney Airport.
The Transport Safety Bureau is currently investigating the incident.
And, it is planning to interview the passengers who were on board the flight. Three investigators are supposed to examine the aircraft and analyze the flight data to determine the complication that led to the emergency landing, as per the bureau.
The authorities have also added that the fallen propeller had not yet been located. They have been enquiring of debris can be found from the aircraft to alert them.
Peter Gibson who was the spokesperson from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority told the media that they did not have any clues as to why the propeller had separated from the aircraft, and he called the incident ‘very, very unusual’.
